‘Dementia Friends’ is part of the Dementia-Friendly Communities program from Dementia Australia. It aims to transform the way we all think, act and talk about dementia.
Being a Dementia Friend can start with small, everyday acts of support and understanding. These small acts can make a big difference in the lives of people living with dementia.
The session aims to:
•give an insight into the impact dementia can have on people
•explain how a dementia-friendly community is created
•prompt you to consider changes you can make to become more dementia-friendly.
With time for questions after the presentation.
This session is being hosted by Woollahra Dementia Alliance (WDA) which is supported by Woollahra Council and Holdsworth. Presenters will be Dr Allan Shell (Chair of Woollahra Dementia Alliance and Dementia Educator) and Alice Wilson (Secretary of WDA & Team Leader, Holdsworth).
